The grant money would be used to fund construction of an elementary school in al-Nizaiha village in al-Gitaina locality in the White Nile state. The school, which significantly participated to lowering illiteracy rate in the area, does not have a building to accommodate its students and its classes are currently held in open air.

The project seeks to promote education in 7 villages in Al-Gitaina area through building 10 classrooms and offices at a cost of $230.000. It is expected to improve learning environment for more than 370 students currently enrolled besides lowering school dropout rates.

The project also funds construction of two elementary schools in al-Khatmiya neighborhood in Kassala at a cost of $209,000. It is intended to improve learning environment for more than 1,080 students by building 8 classrooms, 4 offices, and other buildings besides extending a water line to connect the two schools to the main water line in Kassala.

The Japanese grant coincides with the initiative offered by Plan Sudan organization to train 80 teachers in Kassala state to develop their educational skills.

The grant contracts were signed by the Japanese ambassador to Khartoum, Ryoichi Horie, on behalf of the Japanese government, Madani Abbas Madani, on behalf of Nidaa organization, and Manouj Kumar on behalf of Plan Sudan amid large presence of federal government officials and officials from White Nile and Kassala states.

Japan supports expansion of water supply projects in the White Nile and Kassala states through technical assistance in human resource development. The two states also received Japanese support in vocational training and agricultural development.

The Japanese ambassador asserted Sudan’s importance to peace and stability in Africa, announcing his country’s commitment to cooperate with Sudan to face various social and economic challenges.
